Can you think of anything better than combining the magic of Disney with the holiday cheer of Christmas?
I couldn't either....
For our Christmas gift this year we decide to forgo big gifts and go to Disneyland instead, and so we decided to go during the week of Thanksgiving! (not on Christmas because our passes are blocked) It was magical. I love all of the Christmas decorations and music piped throughout the park. The best Christmas thing in the park? These guys:
DANCING REINDEER. Just imagine this guys jumping up and down, spinning around and dancing to some Christmas music. We just about died laughing at them. Somehow we always seemed to get stuck in "parade traffic" right as these guys were passing, and that was OK by me. Dominique and I even mastered a few of the reindeer's signiture dance moves here...
One day we happened to walk into Disneyland right as the pre-parade marching band finished and since the sidewalks we packed with people waiting for the parade to start we were able to walk behind the marching band to get into the park. So there we were directly behind the marching band, with a crowd of people watching us. Some of you may think that would be embarrassing having all those people watching you. Not my family. We loved it, somehow we all ended up in a line directly behind the band, marching and dancing and waving at all of the people on the sidewalks watching us! It was a blast, and people thought we were funny. I like being funny. Also I like being in parades.
We wanted to go on Splash Mountian, but didn't really want to get wet so we all put on ponchos. We looked like total nerd but it turned the ride into a game.. who could avoid the water! I think the poncho really suits my dad, don't you?
I managed to stay mostly dry on one side, and got soaked on the other, and the water conquered Niques...
We are big fans of posing for the ride camera . . . here are a few!
Unfortunately Dezi was sick most of the trip and couldn't enjoy the trip as much as she wanted to,and the park was SUPER crowded, but we still made the best of it! I love this magical place.
I even got Dezi to laugh a few times!
